Brock Vandagriff is the All-Decommitment Team quarterback, according to SIAA’s John Garcia Jr.

“The longtime Oklahoma commitment was one of the biggest recruiting dominoes at any position in the 2021 cycle,” Garcia writes. “When he picked Lincoln Riley and the Sooners back in 2019, there was always an underlying question about how locked in he would be having grown up about 15 miles from the University of Georgia’s campus in Athens.

“Sure enough, the Bogart, GA, Prince Avenue Christian star would change his mind on New Year’s Day 2020, decommitting from OU after after a six-month pledge. Three weeks later he made the expected move to verbal to Kirby Smart and company, where he would help UGA recruit a top five class in the cycle.

“Of course Oklahoma rebounded about as well as one could imagine, landing No. 1 overall prospect Caleb Williams on July 4. Each are now enrolled at their respective programs, kicking off college careers that may forever be linked.”
